** Another way to obtain a Pikachu with Volt Tackle is in the Pokéwalker course Yellow Forest.
* Pikachu is the smallest, lightest, and the weakest [[version mascot]], likely owing to the fact that it is neither fully evolved nor legendary, unlike the rest.
*[[File:Jessie-39.jpg|thumb|The original Pikachu balloon shown in August of 2006 at its final appearance in the "Party of the Decade".]] There have been two Pikachu balloons in the {{wp|Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade}}. The first, known as the "Flying Pikachu" was flown from 2001 through 2005, was used in a morning rush hour test of wind conditions in {{wp|Times Square}} after an accident in 2005's parade, and made its' farewell appearance at the [[Pokémon 10th Anniversary|Party of the Decade]] in August of 2006 in New York City's Bryant Park. The second version features glowing cheeks and chases a [[Poké ball]] balloon, and debuted in the 2006 parade.

* In the games, Pikachu is the first Pokémon to have its [[cry]] changed to that of its anime counterpart. This only happened in {{game|Yellow}}. [[Junichi Masuda]] details the modification of [[Ikue Ohtani]]'s voice to a sound capable of being made by the low-tech [[Game Boy]] in his [http://www.gamefreak.co.jp/blog/dir_english/?p=144 Director's Column]. In some parts of the game, though, Pikachu's original cry was used.
* Pikachu is in all six regional [[Pokédex]]es, though it is only known to be native to Kanto. It is imported from Kanto to Hoenn's Safari Zone and Mr. Backlot's house in Sinnoh. However, it may also be native to Fiore and/or Almia, as their presence there is unexplained.
